British Racing Green makes nearly everything better in the automotive world, even a small, Japanese sports car. Despite being about 6,000 miles away from Great Britain, Japan is channeling the British spirit with the Toyota 86 British Green Limited special edition.
Be it a Toyota or a Scion, the 86/FR-S has never been offered with a green paint option. We think that should've changed a long time ago after laying eyes on this beauty for the first time. It's obviously no Bentley or Jaguar, but we're universally smitten with the exterior spec of this special edition 86. The paint is only part of the deal here, too. There are bronze wheels unique to this 86, which set the green paint off just right. Hiding inside those bronze wheels are red Brembo brake calipers that look equally as nice. The optional (in the U.S.) Sachs dampers are standard equipment on this model, and a black trunk spoiler with green winglets ties the look together in the rear.
The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force and the British army have held their first joint exercise near Mount Fuji in central Japan.
The drill began on Sunday and is scheduled to take place at the Kita-Fuji exercise camp in the area and other places for 13 days. It was agreed upon at a Japan-British summit in August last year.
A roadside cafe made from an authentic British double-decker bus recently opened in Nagasaki Prefecture, becoming an Instagram-friendly hit among users of the photo-sharing app.
London Cafe, which opened in September in the Nagasaki town of Hasami, is housed in a bus originally manufactured in the 1960s and deployed in the British capital's public transit system. The remodeled interior has a light color scheme and retro furnishings to match the iconic red-and-white exterior.
